This course is a beginner's or entry level class on a lawn sprinkler's electrical system. We cover the fundamental concepts of volts, amps, & ohms and how to measure these at the timer. You'll receive a 4 step process to program any irrigation timer, whether AC or DC. Then we'll get specific about timers, covering all the features you need to program, troubleshoot, or maximize a system's efficiency. As always, I've given you several real world skills that you can put into practice today; selecting and programming the right timer, properly splice sprinkler wiring, use a multimeter to troubleshoot an irrigation timer, and how to use a wire doubler.
We'll consider the definition of Electricity and cover conductors, insulators, and circuits
An understanding of resistance in an electrical circuit is essential to troubleshooting a sprinkler system.
Sprinkler systems typically use a low voltage signal to activate electrical solenoids and operate sensors.
I've owned two irrigation contracting companies over the last 14 years, and still own and operate All Green Irrigation of Columbia, SC. My experience in the business covers the entire range of positions from trench digger to owner, and I've installed and repaired every type and configuration (except for golf courses) of irrigation system. Over the years, I've trained many technicians, and always wished that there was a training system that I could plug a new hire into to get them up and running with fundamental knowledge. Pro Irrigation Training is the answer to that need.
